Within Our Gates was produced and directed by Oscar Micheaux in 1919. He is considered to be the first African-American director of feature films and this is the first such film still in existence. I found the plot difficult to follow, and he does not give full play to the "money" scenes at the conclusion but it is certainly of historic interest.

Fighting Blood was directed by D W Griffith in 1911. It is one of his Buograph shorts, a rip roaring cowboy and Indian tale with lots of horses and gun play so I added plenty of exciting music and sound effects. Hope you can live with it. Enjoy.

The Burglar's Dilemma was directed by D.W. Griffith in 1912. It is a tale of two brothers, Lionel Barrymore and Henry B. Wathall who get involved with a burglar. It is a nice little drama. Watch how the detectives pantomime the police "Mutt and Jeff routine" with the burglar.

The New York Hat was directed by D W Griffith for the Biograph Studio in 1912. It has many of Griffith's stock players in it. You may spot Mae Marsh as a gossip or Lillian Gish as a customer in the store but the main roles are played by Lionel Barrymore as the pastor and Mary Pickford as he girl. The script was written by Anita Loos. It is a gentle story with a clear moral, but I thought the real star had to be the hat.

Director D.W. Griffith's expensive, most ambitious silent film masterpiece Intolerance (1916) is one of the milestones and landmarks in cinematic history. Many reviewers and film historians consider it the greatest film of the silent era. The mammoth film was also subtitled: "A Sun-Play of the Ages" and "Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages." Griffith was inspired to make this film after watching the revolutionary Italian silent film epic Cabiria (1914) by director Giovanni...

From Wikipedia: Never Weaken is a 1921 silent comedy film starring Harold Lloyd and directed by Fred Newmeyer. It was Lloyd's last short film, running to three reels, before he moved permanently into feature-length production. It was also one of his trademark "thrill" comedies, featuring him dangling from a tall building. Lloyd and his crew honed and perfected their "thrill" filming techniques in this film, and put them to astonishing use in the 1923 classic feature Safety...
